Mr Zidane, how good it's to see you again - preview of the 28th round of LaLiga
On paper, the plan of games in this round does not look the most interesting, which does not mean that it is not worth looking at Spanish pitches this weekend. After 284 days, Zinedine Zidane returns to the coaching bench. The French trainer is to reorder the Real team in order to join the fight for the most important trophies again next season. Diego Simeone's charges can't afford to stumble. After leaving the Champions League, they have to fight for the national championship. To Barcelona they lose seven points in front of the round. There is also a fierce struggle for subsistence. On Sunday evening, Villarreal, just above the inheritance zone, will take on Rayo Vallecano, who is the penultimate. Real Sociedad - Levante (Friday) We will start the competition on Estadio Anoeta. Sociedad players present a solid form this season, thanks to which they are now in ninth place. Recently, however, they have been going through a small crisis. They lost their last two matches and finally want to score in front of their own audience. Their rival will be Levante, who still has to fight for subsistence. Paco Lopez's charges are only five points away from the drop zone. In this competition I will bet on a minimum victory of the hosts. My type - 2:1 Huesca - Deportivo Alavés (Saturday) This meeting has a clear favourite. The hosts are on the very bottom of the league table. Out of 27 games played so far, they won only five of them. A consolation for Huesca fans can be the fact that they lose four points to a safe place. This loss is still to be made up for, although on Saturday it will be difficult for them to score even one point. At El Alcoraz will come Alavés players, who impress with their form in the current tournament. With 41 points they are in fifth place and do not intend to forgive the fight for the best four. My type - 0:1 Real Madrid - Celta Vigo (Saturday) I suspect that this meeting will have the biggest audience in the upcoming queue. All thanks to the return of Zizou to the coaching bench. The fans of Real want to forget about this season as soon as possible and with the arrival of the Frenchman, they look to the future with optimism. Florentino Perez gave Zidane a free hand in the squad revolution. It didn't take long to get the first amplification. For 50 million euros, Santiago Bernabeu will receive Eder Militao. On Saturday, a result other than victory is not an option. Especially that Celta will come to Madrid, which is currently in a zone of decline. My type - 3:0 Athletic Bilbao - Atletico Madrid (Saturday) The charges of Diego Simeone, after being eliminated from the Champions League, are still fighting in the domestic backyard. Unlike Real, they still have something to play for, although there is no denying that only some complete disaster can take the championship away from Barcelona. Currently, Griezmann and the company lose seven points to the Barca. They did not collapse in the defeat in the derby of Madrid at the beginning of February and have a series of four league victories in a row. On Saturday, they will be leaving for Bilbao. Athleticu players don't impress with their form this season, but they occupy a safe, twelfth position. My type - 0:2 Leganés - Girona (Saturday) It will surely be a very balanced duel, because the teams, adjacent to each other in the table, meet each other. Thirteenth Leganés has only two points more than Girona. Both bands are not able to stabilize their form. Numerous injuries do not make the trainers' work easier. I assume that the defenders of the hosts will have a lot of work in this match, because in the line-up there is a selection shooter. Cristhian Stuani has 16 goals and is therefore the third best scorer of the current LaLiga season. My type - 2:2 Eibar - Real Valladolid (Sunday) Players of Valladolid awaits a very hard trip. Eibar is doing very well in its own backyard. In 14 matches played at home, they lost only two. Their biggest problem is defensiveness, which can be seen from the number of goals lost. Luckily, they also have goal-shooting forwards in their squad. Sergi Enrich and Charles have already scored a total of 18 goals. In this duel the hosts will be the favourites. For guests each point is now at a weight of gold, because there is only one eye above the slope zone. My type - 2:1 Espanyol - Sevilla (Sunday) Espanyol players are in great shape recently. They have not lost from six games and can rest assured of their livelihood. Their great streak will be interrupted by the charges of Pablo Machin (No. He was released a few hours ago;). Sevilla, for the next season in a row, is fighting for the end of the top four and direct promotion to the Champions League. At this moment, to the fourth Getafe, they lose five points. The trainer must skillfully rotate the squad, because Banega and the company are still competing in the Europa League. Fans from Andalusia dream of winning their favourite games. I would like to remind you that in 2013-2016, Seville won the Europa League three times in a row. In this competition I bet on a goal draw. My type - 2:2 Valencia - Getafe (Sunday) Fans from Estadio Mestalla are certainly not complaining about this season. Moreno and the company keep their place in the upper part of the table. The last match they lost on 22 January. Their form is growing all the time. In February, they secured a promotion to the Copa del Rey finals. As if that wasn't enough, on Thursday they eliminated Krasnodar from the Europa League and are already in the quarter-finals of the tournament. Marcelino rotates the line-up perfectly and is not afraid to bet on young people, thanks to which it is possible to achieve such good results both in the national backyard and on the European arena. On Sunday evening they will have to face a very demanding rival. Getafe players have been impressing with their form since the beginning of the season and are now in fourth place. The strength of the team led by Pepe Bordalas is determined by the attackers, namely Jorge Molina and Jaime Mata. In total they have already collected 23 goals. My type - 1:1 Villarreal - Rayo Vallecano (Sunday) It will be an extremely important meeting, in the context of the struggle for subsistence. Vallecano players are in the penultimate position and are not expected to get out of the inheritance zone quickly. They lost the last six league matches. Just like Levante, they are the team that loses the most goals. Rayo goalkeeper has already taken the ball out of the net 48 times. On Sunday, they will have to face a team that is equally poorly able to cope. Villarreal collected only three more points and is just above the slope zone. Interestingly, Moreno and the company also compete in the Europa League. They are doing surprisingly well in these games. They advanced to the quarter-final. Yes, it's not a joke. The seventeenth LaLiga team will play in the 1/4 final of the European League! My type - 0:0 Real Betis - Barcelona (Sunday) There is no point in fooling that any result other than Barca victory will be a surprise in this competition. The Catalans are destroying everything that stands in their way. They don't have to look at others and consistently work for the title. They have the strongest offensive in the league. Messi and the company have already scored 69 goals this season and do not intend to stop. At the end of the 28th round they will go to Sevilla, where they will face Betis, who plays a really good ball this season. The eighth place in the table is not a matter of chance. Interestingly, in the November clash between the two teams, Betis players, who after a fantastic meeting, defeated the Barcelona 3:4. The Spanish champions therefore have the opportunity for a revenge. My type - 1:3 That's all about the preview of the 28th round of LaLiga. I wish you only positive emotions this weekend! See you!
